M.C. Beaton braved the December chill to show her Facebook fans some of her favourite places in the Cotswolds in a photo gallery.
The photos include her out and about in Chipping Camden, Evesham, and overlooking the Cotswold hills, as well as a view of her at home at her desk.
You can view the gallery over on her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.780675138625793.1073741829.112137975479516&type=1.
